With just two weeks left in the NFL season, there are a growing number of teams who have nothing left to play for. While these teams may be getting ready to head off into the offseason, there is still the possibility that they could play a role in the playoff picture. A perfect example of that comes on Thursday night, when the Philadelphia Eagles have an opportunity to upset the postseason plans of their division rivals, the New York Giants. At 10-4, the Giants appear to be a playoff lock, but they will desperately want to hang on to the number 2 seed that would see them get a first round bye once the playoffs get under way. There are a couple of teams that could run them down if they slip up at all in the final two weeks, which is why you can bet that the Giants will not be coming into this one thinking that they already have it in the bag. The bookies have this one close, with the Giants in as a 3-point favorite on the NFL lines.
